Today’s finest Apple sales start with a low-cost Apple Watch Ultra 2, while the wearable is priced at $645. Also on sale are Philips Hue smart lighting from $16, as well as a price cut for our preferred AirPods Max alternatives, the Bowers & Wilkins Px7 S2e Headphones, that can now be purchased for $319. Stay tuned to get more information and details in the most recent 9to5Toys Lunch Break.
The Apple Watch Ultra 2 sees a rare refurbished discount down to $645
The certified refurbished program at eBay has set the price of Apple Watch Ultra 2 at $645 in Excellent – Refurbished condition. Every style is part of the event, with Ocean Bands accompanied by both Alpine and Trail loops in a variety of colors. The drop in price from the usual $799 price tag to $154 is the best discount we’ve seen, and there’s also an opportunity of getting a new condition model at $50 off. Complete coverage of Apple’s fitness stable is available here.
The second-generation rugged wearable from Apple, the Apple Watch Ultra 2, comes with upgrades over its predecessor. Everything is in the same elevated case as before, featuring a more distinct side module that accommodates the standard Digital Crown, as well as a secondary, customizable action button to round out the form-factor adjustments. At the heart of the experience is the new S9 chip, which powers the new pinch gesture recognition technology for one-handed interactions. If 2024 has outdoor activities like hiking or snowboarding as part of your plans, you can use the Apple Watch Ultra 2 to monitor your health along the way.
CalDigit’s TS3 Plus Thunderbolt 3 dock is a 9to5 favorite
Amazon is now reducing the price of one of our favorite Thunderbolt 3 docks on the market. The CalDigit TS3 Plus is now on offer for $225. The dock usually sells for $300, but now it is available for $75 off, marking the second-best discount we’ve seen, just topped by last fall’s Black Friday pricing. The TS3 Plus has been an essential part of 9to5 desktop setups for years, and you can read a lot more about it in our in-depth review.
Packed into its premium metal shell are five USB-A ports, three TB3 outputs, DisplayPort, Gigabit Ethernet, and more. This dock not only expands your Mac’s I/O, but brings 87W USB-C charging to the equation, allowing you to connect to all of these inputs with a single cable while still powering up your MacBook.
Compared to the newer TS4 Dock, you are making some sacrifices with the CalDigit dock on sale above. For many, these trade-offs will be worth the cash, but it’s still worth breaking down just what you’re missing between the two. The biggest adjustment is right in the name, with the newer counterpart arriving with Thunderbolt 4 support as opposed to Thunderbolt 3.
Logitech’s MX Master 3S is the ultimate mouse for Mac
Amazon is now offering the Logitech MX Master 3S Mouse for Mac at $84. Normally priced at $100, you’re saving $16, marking a new all-time low. The price has been even lower than today’s offer a few months ago. Logitech created a new 8000 DPI sensor and a well-liked ergonomic form-factor, as well as quieter switches to give the 3S iteration a name. All of the other features in the Logitech MX Master 3 are also carried over to the new S version, with a build designed to work with Macs and pair with your machine over Bluetooth, providing 70-hour battery life. Alongside USB-C charging, features include “ultrafast” MagSpeed scrolling, app-specific customizations, Flow cross-computer control, and much more.
Philips Hue smart lighting sale starts from $16
Woot today is launching its latest chance to score substantial discounts on Philips Hue gear thanks to one of its signature certified refurbished sales. Marking down a collection of smart LED bulbs, lamps, lightstrips, and accessories, these are all rare chances to save. All starting from $16, you’ll be able to expand your Siri, Alexa, or Assistant setup with everything from standard light bulbs to individually-addressable RGB lightstrips, filament bulbs, and even outdoor smart lighting. Everything is down to the best prices in month and also comes backed by a 90-day warranty.
Bowers & Wilkins Px7 S2e Headphones are our favorite AirPods Max killer
Amazon is now offering the Bowers & Wilkins Px7 S2e Headphones for $319. This is down from the usual $399 price tag and now marking a new all-time low at $80 off. We’ve seen these headphones for $50 off quite a few times since launching last year, now they’re falling lower than we ever seen with an extra $30 in savings. Earlier this fall, I tried out the new Bowers & Wilkins Px7 S2e headphones, only to be convinced that they are the AirPods Max successors I had been anticipating. Now they’re even easier to recommend with today’s discount. Dive into our in-depth review for the full details.
The Bowers & Wilkins Px7 S2e bring a more luxurious take on over-ear headphones that are available in one of four styles. The model also offers the brand’s signature sound with a unique acoustic system that features angled drivers, and there’s also active noise cancellation. The most impressive feature is the high-end build that makes these headphones exceptionally comfortable to wear.
The updated pair of headphones was revealed just a few months back, and now brings with it an upgraded high-performance Digital Signal Processing to go alongside even better sound from a similar driver array. There’s a new Forest Green color, too. Otherwise, the headphones deliver the same 40mm drivers, six microphones, aptX Adaptive support, and Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity as the original pair.
